This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.

today is hard day, the hard days seem to come and go but today, for some reason, is hard. I miss my dad who passed away 3 months ago from cancer. I found some cards and messages from him today and it all seems like just yesterday we were in that hospital room saying goodbye. Cancer is such a terrible disease. It breaks my heart that others have to suffer the pain of cancer and what it brings to family and friends.

Want to write a few words tonight as tomorrow will be 15 months since my hubby took his final Journey into the gates o0f Heaven.  April 29 2014 at  4:15 AM he left with the Angel who came for him. Very hard to let them go but when their time is up, we must say good bye and let the go. We would like to keep them here longer, but GOD says time to come home my child.  My live is slowly becoming accustomed to the absence of his body, smiles, jokes, arguing moods,  confusion, and coughs. Bless his heart he was  one sick man.  Cancer is terrible and so hard on the ones are taking care of them.We are all going to die when it is our time. My hubby had five different cancer cells in his body at the time of his passing, I praised and thanked GOD for taking him home and out of the pain,  confusion and dementia that went along the path he was traveling .  Love him, miss him, but understand Gods Plans are always the right way.  Praying for all who have lost loved ones , some with and some without God . Blessings to all.

My adult children(mid 20's) lost their father this past November. I know it affects them both, but, esp. my son. It's like they were 2 peas in a pod. Now he tries to BE his father by fixing everything he can. He really misses talking with him and admits that his father had a way with words that he truly misses. My daughter misses being a "princess"...It isn't easy on them. I expect it isn't easy on you. Words won't help. Know that your mom IS still with you.

my mom had Pancreatic Cancer. The pain of seeing her suffer was horrific. My mom was and will always be my bff. I wish someone could relate to how a moms passing affects day to day life. The pain I feel is incredible. Keeping busy is a quick fix to distract me but will never take away this pain. I miss her every day. some people say move on there is nothing you can do and that makes the hurt worse.

Megan...Thanks for your comment.  There are so many men and women  who are going through this same feeling.  So thankful someone started this web site so we can all converse with each other.  It helps to share some of our thoughts and prayers here.

Lisa and Shirley you are not alone. I keep ruminating over my Mom's last few weeks and thinking of things I wish I had said or done. I just feel so guilty, like I should have done more. She deserved more.

No one can predict how they will react when faced with losing someone so close to them. It can be hard to accept, but we gave as much as we could. I am sure they were grateful that we were their for them in their last moments. When I become overwhelmed with negative thoughts I try going for a walk or doing some mindfulness. It helps some, at least to keep the worst at bay. Xx

Lisa.....Just read your post and wanted to say hello and that I can relate with your feelings.  Lost my husband the 29 of April 2014, had him at home with Hospice of the Valley, and still wonder if there something more  I could have done for him.  Know now that GOD was in charge and HE was the one who controlled my husbands life.  Miss him and will love him he rest  of my life.  But understand he has a new world, body, pain free, no medicines, no confusions and we will re-unite some day. That gets me through each day.  God  Bless you and may each that passes bring you closer to the peace you need.

Lately, I can't stop thinking of my brother's last month in the hospital and at hospice, and wishing I'd done more for him.  I'm feeling flooded with these thoughts and just want him back.  I desperately want him back.
